Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
In this arid night solicitude for God and yearnings about serving him increases.
St. John of the Cross
As the soul experiences dryness in the midst of this night, it is drawn to God with even deeper longings and desires to serve God alone. In your prayer today, ask to be drawn closer to God who yearns for you even more.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
